Police motorway go-slow gets green light

Police plans to stage a go-slow on the roads around Rotterdam, The Hague and Dordrecht in support of their pay claim on Thursday afternoon have been given the go-ahead by judges.

The police plan to stage the go-slow from 16.30 to 17.00 and it may lead to long delays on some roads, union officials told news agency ANP.
Police chiefs had gone to court in an effort to have the action banned, saying it would be irresponsible. However the court ruled police officers have the right to strike and the go-slow can go ahead.
